Il Dottore’s costume

Each character in Commedia dell’arte has a distinct costume that helps the audience understand who the character is. Il Dottore’s costume was a play on the academic dress of the Bolognese scholars. Il Dottore is almost always clothed entirely in black. He wore a long black gown or jacket that went below the knees. Over the gown, he would have a long black robe that went down to his heels, and he would have on black shoes, stockings, and breeches.
